TGI Friday's tops Sunday Times Best Big Companies list

Restaurant chain TGI Friday's has shot straight to the top of the Sunday Times list of the 25 Best Big Companies to Work For.

It was a new entry for TGI Friday's, which was joined by another five restaurant, hotel and foodservice companies to make this year's top 25.

The hospitality firms to make the list (with last year's position in brackets) were:

TGI Friday's - 1 (NEW)
Marriott Hotels Group - 4 (6)
Bourne Leisure - 7 (5)
McDonald's Restaurants - 9 (7)
Whitbread - 12 (8)
Elior UK - 21 (NEW)

Elior, which became the first ever contract caterer to make the list back in 2013, has also gained a One Star rating from Best Companies - its first.

Commenting on the news, Catherine Roe, chief executive, Elior UK said: "Being listed as a Best Company to work for is a reflection of our continued commitment to all of our team, investing in our people to ensure we have a strong colleague culture across the business.

"Over the past three years, we've developed a unique and compelling proposition for the contract catering market: to deliver great customer experiences and to measure and demonstrate this mission. This could only be delivered by motivated and well trained employees."

The Sunday Times Best Big Companies to Work For is open to firms with 3,500 or more people in their workforce.
